Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Brunch catch up with retired ( and soon to be ) colleagues. Excellent location and easy to get to . Just watch the parking . Once again great service and very good breakfast food served how you request it . Love how juice and tea/coffee...are included with the set menu deals . That should come as standard in my opinion. Have now been here on several occasions and not found any problems as per the negative reviews although it was a quiet day . Back again on Valentines Day so will update after a busy nightMore

Not the best. 3 of our 4 mains were cold. The plates were hotter than the food. Sent back and came back microwaved. Chicken Balmoral was so tough it was hard to cut and 1 dish was still cold. Not the usual experience we’ve had...previously. Waiter did try to rectify but you can’t send food back twice for another blast in a microwave. Shame as lovely setting and staff niceMore

Had the "Traditional Christmas Turkey & trimmings" from the gluten free menu. Was disappointed that the trimmings were potatoes and veg! No stuffing or pigs in blankets etc..Not what I expected from the description. The meal was distinctly average. Pity as it's been great on...previous visitsMore

Really pleased with the food but the service was way too relaxed. We were in the restaurant for over 2 hours and we only had a main course and a dessert. The 4 steak pies and 1 Mac and cheese took 35 mins to arrive...which isn't horrendous. However we had to go to the bar to ask for refills and we were quickly dismissed with "I'll come to your table and get your order" I don't think the girl was rude but maybe she could think of the way she said it. Throughout the meal we had no idea who our server was. One of them was dropping off dessert menus and I Attempted to ask her a question and she was so focused on the next task she immediately just just bolted and didn't pay attention to me. The young boy Billy seemed to be working very hard and paying attention to his surroundings though it was nice to see. We also had to ask for the bill twice which was a bit of a headache as we really wanted to leave. There were no more than 6 tables in the restaurant at once so it was a bit disappointing to see how slow the service was. I think the pendulum is a lovely restaurant and could maybe just do with a little team meeting and do their best to focus on getting people a refill faster, and not treading on eggshells with customers, don't be afraid to clear their plates to try to move them on to the next step of their meal, be it desserts or the bill. It was a little disappointing that none on the female staff that were always near the table never noticed us looking about. I think because we never had a specific server it was a combination of everyone and no one. I would still return, food was great and none of the team seemed like bad people.More

Booked Lunch for 1.30 pm and arrived on time.Food ok,but service is a joke(I put this down to a deliberate unnecessary waiting time between courses(3) as a ploy by management to give the false impression that this resteraunt was being well used(in fact it was...three quarters empty)The total time for this lunch lasted 2 hours! and when we asked for bill while still eating-it was immediately presented.To say we’re annoyed is putting it mildly and obviously booking for lunch was unnecessary. z much as ai want to support my local resteraunts,I’m afraid it won’t be the pendulum.More

7 guys out for our monthly meet up and chose here. Friendly welcome and shon to our table. Drinks order taken as we individually arrived. We went with a 2 course set lunch, good choices for us. Tasty starters and the fish and chips main...was huge and very nice. Followed up with coffee, reasonably priced bill £20.00 a head including the tip. Staff were pleasant, the restaurant was busy so the food service was a bit slow but everything arrived piping hot. Would return.More
